    Pregnant wife raped at home

    By MIKE SULLIVAN
    Crime Editor

    Published: 30 Sep 2009
    A SEVEN months pregnant woman was raped by a burglar as two accomplices held her husband at gunpoint, it was revealed yesterday.
    Three masked men burst into the couple's home and the beast frogmarched the mum-to-be to a bedroom.

    Last night, the 33-year-old victim revealed that the rapist told her "It's your lucky day" as he carried out a sickening assault.

    She said: "At that stage I just wanted to protect my baby.

    "I was terrified, with it being so late in the pregnancy. I didn't want to get into a fight where they may hurt me or the baby."

    Her 39-year-old husband added: "I pleaded, I was shouting, 'She's pregnant, she's pregnant, leave off her. Tell me what you want'."

    The gang had produced a metal object wrapped in a bag, which they said was a gun, and put it to the man's head.

    They ransacked the house, stealing keys to an Audi TT, laptop, mobile phones and cash.

    The crime took place in Finsbury Park, North London, in May last year but police released details only yesterday because the couple had asked for no publicity until the woman gave birth. Two months after the attack, she had a healthy boy.

    But she said the horror of the raid is still with her, telling BBC1's Crimewatch last night: "Everything that you believe to be safe is no longer safe. You can't walk into the bedroom and feel relaxed because you remember that someone was in there who wasn't supposed to be."

    Cops are keen to trace three men captured by nearby CCTV just before the break-in. Scotland Yard hopes underworld "allegiances" may have changed in the 16 months since, prompting someone to come forward.

    Det Insp Robert Pack said: "There is a reward of up to £20,000 and I hope people out there are prepared to tell us what they know."

    But cops were blasted for putting the public at risk by not publicising the crime. Ex-Yard commander John O'Connor said: "It was an appalling decision. Thugs who do that kind of thing don't stop and they will have committed further crimes. You must put public safety first."

    ANYONE with information should call 0208 345 3865 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

    All the security cameras in the UK didn't help this couple.

    Disarming law-abiding citizens didn't prevent the crime.

    Being armed could have prevented this.

    Many in our country would like to disarm us just as those in the UK are disarmed.

    Sorry but a metal object wrapped in a bag would not keep me from fighting the three guys, even if I didn't have a gun myself.

    Sad state of affairs when folks go after pregnant women.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    This is what can happen when they did not fight oppressive government. Will our government put Americans in the same position? And a new member of the supremes has said that self defense is akin to vigilantism.

    Feel bad for them :(

    But cops were blasted for putting the public at risk by not publicising the crime. Ex-Yard commander John O'Connor said: "It was an appalling decision. Thugs who do that kind of thing don't stop and they will have committed further crimes. You must put public safety first."
    And this folks is why the will be ! So now it's the cops fault?!? And what always makes me LOL is how they think that once they get these thugs off the street there will be no more running around!! Maybe if everyone was a little more concerned for their safety they would still have their guns

    Oh, well..... What do they expect over there? take away a person's right to defend themselves, and this is what happens.....

    And all they accomplished with the cameras was they saw the perps leaving. Obviously they knew where the cams were so they wore masks.....

    Anti-mask legislation. Look for it soon in the UK.

    Had the husband resisted he would of been charged with assault since all they can do is call the cops for help,anything more than that and they are committing a crime even if it's self defense

    I'm sorry. Could you be more specific? WHICH idiot in the White House are you speaking of?

    There are so many, I just needed to clarify...

    farronwolf, I would have done the same thing... But be advised, in London, you'd probably have been prosecuted and jailed if you had assaulted the intruders. That's what they do these days to the good guys!

    The laws in UK now days border on insanity. I have read no less than half a dozen or more news articles in the last several months of homeowners prosecuted for assaulting the criminals and trying to defend themselves in their own homes!

    That means you're just another "vigilante American" for doing what is right.

    Sad what happened to this woman. I doubt they'll ever get those guys, or if they do, they'll be out of prison in a week.
